We really enjoyed our stay at The Rex. From the start the staff were all really friendly and helpful, lots of advice if you needed and a map of Toronto along with an explanation of each area. The atmosphere in the bar was really good and even though we're not big Jazz fans we enjoyed the experience and music. The... More

It was a good place to stay. The one I stayed in was the Standard room, really small. There was no mini fridge or microwave, which I had thought there would be. I wanted to go down to their bar one of the nights and was told I had to pay $10 per person to get in and that it... More

The cn tower is within walking distance. We were checked in quickly and were offered help with our bags. Food was good. The room was... More

The room it's self I would describe as "cosy"... More

I can't comment on the hotel because we went to the Rex for dinner and music. The food is tasty, but not exceptional, and the menu is pretty average, however I love this place! We visited Toronto for a couple of days at New Years and were told that this was the place to go for live jazz. Unfortunately they... More

Owner and staff are very friendly, subway and streetcar stops only minutes away, this hotel is good for the pub food and the jazz bands (you pay to see separately if there are any tickets left) however, you can still hear a little if your in the room, but can still fall asleep easily. Would recommend to couples needing a... More

Travelling Solo in Toronto looking for central location. Couldn't get a better location. Queen St is a town lost in a city. Everything is at a stones throw from with a great mix of vintage & high end fashion, to your selection of eateries though The Rex does really good pub fare. The rooms were okay, the shared bathrooms at... More

Good Value for money, not usual type of place I stay, but need place to rest - it works. Also Jazz downstairs can be really great! Very central location, close to convention sites, downtown shopping and dining.

The staff at the Rex Hotel were the best - friendly, attentive and always wanted to help improve your experience. Our reason for choosing the hotel was it's reasonable price and being recommended to stay on the West side of town. However, when we got there as 2 women alone we did not feel entirely comfortable in the area -... More
